Rosenstein Approved Surveillance Extension Of Former Trump Adviser

Ex-FBI agent debunks 'misleading' GOP memo: Judge confirmed 'valuable intel' came from tapping Carter Page

The Times report did not reveal the evidence Rosenstein relied on to authorize extension of the surveillance.

A secret GOP memo hints that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein could be targeted for his handling of a surveillance request against Carter Page, a campaign associate of President Donald Trump.

Republicans' secret memo - that they claim reveals evidence of an internal bias within the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department - reportedly shows that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave the green light to extend surveillance of an aide for President Trump's campaign, according to new reporting from The New York Times.

"The president has been clear publicly and privately that he wants absolute transparency throughout this process", White House spokesman, Hogan Gidley, said in a statement.

Rosenstein has been in charge of the Russian Federation investigation since Attorney General Jeff Session recused himself. It could be an indication that Republicans are seizing on Rosenstein's role in approving the surveillance extension to undermine the special counsel probe, according to the article.

Page told The Daily Caller last week that he "very much" hopes that the push to release the FISA memo will be successful.

Democrats in the House told the Times they're anxious Republicans may use the memo to show the DOJ was slanted against members of the Trump campaign. Last summer, the president considered firing Rosenstein, who is overseeing the investigation that so far has led to indictments against four Trump associates.

But a trip Page took to Russian Federation in July 2016 while working on Trump's campaign caught the bureau's attention again, and USA law enforcement officials began conducting surveillance on him in the fall of 2016, shortly after he left the campaign. Without mentioning the Republican memo, he said that federal investigations must be free of bias, and that he would not condone "a culture of defensiveness".

Daniel Farber, a professor of constitutional law at Berkeley Law School, said that misrepresenting the warrant application would be one of the only ways Rosenstein's Justice Department could be accused of misconduct in this scenario. Page popped up on investigators' radar a year before after several Russian spies made contact with him in what may have been a recruitment attempt.
